Confronting Intolerance Today

A Conversation with Rabbi Marc Schneier, Imam Shamsi Ali, and Dutch Chief Prosecutor Herman Bolhaar

More than 60 years after Anne’s death, hate crimes against minorities—whether religious, ethnic, or otherwise—continue to pervade Europe and the United States. In this conversation with Rabbi Marc Schneier, Imam Shamsi Ali, and Dutch Chief Prosecutor Herman Bolhaar, The Anne Frank Center will lead a discussion exploring innovative ways Dutch authorities and American religious leaders are confronting hate and promoting tolerance in Europe and the United States. The conversation will be hosted by the US Congressional Dutch Caucus.

Rabbi Marc Schneier is the founder and president of The Foundation for Ethic Understanding and is internationally renowned as a pioneer in Muslim-Jewish relations. Imam Shamsi Ali is a renowned Muslim scholar and well known Imam in New York City. Herman Bolhaar is the Chairman of the Board of Prosecutors General of the Netherlands.

This event is made possible through funding from KLM Dutch Airlines, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Netherland-America Foundation.
